Val’s view: How I found my fashion fairy godmother
Posted on 08 April 2015
You think you know the story of “Cinderella,” right? Well, if you see the new live-action Disney version of “Cinderella,” you’ll get a whole new idea of how fabulous and stylish a fairy godmother can be.
No more simple “bibbidi bobbidi boo” commands for this newly reimagined fairy godmother, played by Helena Bonham Carter, in this enchanting film.
She’s not just ditzy…she’s also glitzy. She’s not just bumbling…she’s also beautiful. She’s not just a protective mother figure…she’s also a fashion stylist worthy of the Paris runways.
This fairy godmother’s white gown sparkles almost as much as the twinkly ice-blue ball gown she creates for Cinderella.
If you need your own fashion fairy godmother to add sparkle to your wardrobe, I can wave my magic wand and get you to just the right place: Anthony’s women fashion store. The flattering and fun styles at Anthony’s – complemented with bibbidi bobbidi bling – will have you feeling like Cinderella in no time.
Take my Breezes Bermuda shorts with the rhinestone grommets at the hem, for example. These shorts are the perfect stretchy summer fabric – 75 percent cotton, 23 percent polyester and 2 percent Spandex. What’s more, they have the most delicate dazzle. When I cross my legs at the wine-tasting bar or by the pool, those tiny sparkles at my knee make me feel extra pretty. You might say they’re the perfect fit.
I also like tops with sparkly embroidery or jewel work at the neckline, and I love slim ladies resort pants with a touch of sparkle at the ankle. Why sparkle and shine there? Because sparkle and shine attracts attention – and I want that attention on my face, because I’m smiling and happy and relaxed (I live in Florida!) or where I am still naturally fresh and skinny, my ankles! (The Isadela slim black pants with sparkle at the hem are perfect! And exclusive to Anthony’s.)
Take your carriage over to Anthony’s for the kind of women’s resort fashion you thought you could only find in fairy tales. You may even snag Prince Charming along the way.
Love to sparkle like Cinderella?
Val’s view: Put on your tiara and dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table
When I put on my baby blue Breezes Bermuda shorts and my colorful Spring Bloom V-neck T-shirt from Coconut Row (all at Anthony’s, of course!), I feel like a princess. I love to dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table inside Cinderella’s castle at Disney World. It’s a storybook setting, complete with grand spiral staircase.
